I got a 4oz pouch of gnome root beer extract today. I can find all kind's of info on yeast carbing and keg carbing. We are wanting to make a concentrate to add to seilzer water and there is no info on this. Does anyone do this? The 4oz pack will make 5 gallons of root beer. It states to make a half gallon concentrate by heating 1/2 gallon of water w/2.5 lbs of sugar, 2 oz of the extract. Then adding that mix to water to make make 2.5 gallons and then you add yeast and do your fermentation. Im thinking of adding the same amount of sugar and extract to 1/4 gallon instead of the 1/2 water. Then adding that to seilzer water. I need to do some math to fig out how much of the concentrate to use in the seilzer water but you get the idea. Has anyone done this and does my plan seem ok?
